Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens that can treat cataracts and presbyopia.
Accommodating means the action of the eye’s tiny ciliary muscles flexing and changing the position of the eye’s lens for focusing at different distances. With presbyopia the natural lens becomes less flexible due to aging.
The Crystalens IOL is uniquely fitted to the eyes’ muscles and uses them to flex and accommodate in the same way your natural lens once functioned.
Crystalens flexes as you focus your vision.
Crystalens HD, utilizes an optic design that is optimized to increase depth of focus – as a result it is designed to improve near vision without compromising intermediate or distance acuity. It features an enhanced accommodating optic that is designed to yield: improved depth of focus and improved near vision.
- The first and only FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens
- The only FDA-approved intraocular lens that uses the natural focusing ability of the eye
- The only FDA-approved presbyopia correcting IOL for cataract patients that provides a single focal point throughout a continuous range of vision
Crystalens patients have reported less problems with glare, halos and night vision. Crystalens focuses only one image to the back of the eye, unlike a multifocal lens that projects multiple images, requiring your brain to “adjust” to the differences.
Many patients hardly ever wear glasses after surgery.
The unique Crystalens is designed to allow you to enjoy a fuller, more natural range of vision for most activities, including: reading a book, working on a computer, and driving a car.
